A preview of what LinkedIn members have to say about Ben:

  • Ben was an excellent ‘hands-on’ leader who motivated and inspired his team to deliver outstanding service. He adeptly translated business needs into tangible results. Following his arrival he quickly built up strong relationships with the business, understood the competing demands and delivered measured improvements.
  • Ben is a visionary IT strategist, who has an amazing, practical understanding of professional services and how to use IT solutions to make life simpler for users. It's not about the bells and whistles, it's about asking "what do we do? what can we do better? how can we do it better? how can we do it better using what we have? and only then, what will enable us to do it better at proportionate cost, with easy back-end integration and minimal front-end impact? He is is also a great pleasure to work with.
